Hard Tissue After Tummy Tuck, is this normal?

Hello, I am new to this site and find it very helpful. I had my TT March 6 , exactly 3 weeks ago today. I must say that for 3 weeks I'm doing wonderful. I'm still swollen I know this is normal and it's soft . However, below my belly button is real hard and stiff

You are still in the early stages of healing so the stiffness in the central abdomen would make sense to me.  However, you should always be in touch with your plastic surgeon to insure that what you describe is consistent with normal healing.
